CITY SEEKS RESIDENTS TO SERVE ON NEWLY FORMED
Citizen’s Financial Advisory Committee
The City of Arcadia is seeking qualified candidates to serve on the newly formed Citizen’s Financial Advisory Committee. The City Council will appoint Committee members to serve in an advisory capacity to help review the City’s long-term financial forecast, and provide recommendations to the City Council for revenue enhancements and cost containment. The commitment is expected to be for a period of no more than six months, but will require intense review and discussion about the City’s financial future.
Due to specialized nature of this Committee, prospective candidates with a background in finance are preferred. To serve on the Committee, candidates must be at least 18 years of age, a registered voter, and a resident of the City of Arcadia.
Qualified candidates with an interest in serving may pick up an application from the City Clerk’s Office, located at 240 W. Huntington Drive, or print one off of the City’s website at www.ArcadiaCA.gov/CitizenService. Applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office on or before the close of business on Thursday, May 24, 2018. Appointments are expected to be made in June.
For additional information about serving on the Citizen’s Financial Advisory Committee, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 574-5455.
